David Koma inspired by the movies 9 1/2 Weeks and Basic Instinct
26 June, 2019
The Georgian brand David Koma will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year. Watching again VHS tapes back in Georgia, the head designer David Komakhidze put his inspiration from the films 9 1/2 Weeks and Basic Instinct into his new collection David Koma Resort 2020.
“Koma’s glamorous clients like to invest big in their party wardrobes, and though he rarely does red carpet, he is beginning to address the demand for black tie. His version of a gown was unabashedly sexy—a glittering
sheer column dress embellished with hundreds of mirrored shards. On the flip side of that was the brand’s first foray into denim. Whether Korma fans will get on board with the designer’s skintight skinny jeans, cut with jersey on one side, remains to be seen. That said, the evening-appropriate pieces, including a denim miniskirt finished with asymmetric feathers along the hem, are likely to get a lot of play at cocktail hour,” says Vogue about the collection.
David Komakhidze (David Koma) is a Georgian fashion designer based in London. His dresses are distinguished by elegance and body contouring silhouettes. Before moving to London, David Koma studied Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia. He then continued his studies at the prestigious Central St.Martins College of Art and Design, London. After his graduation in 2009, David Koma launched his own label “David Koma” and has been a regular participant in London Fashion Week ever since.
